Top deputy departs Hutchinson staff for consulting

Posted By on Mon, Jun 13, 2016 at 12:50 PM

Jon Gilmore, who was campaign manager  for Gov. Asa Hutchinson's election and who has been his deputy chief of staff, has announced his resignation at the end of the month to  open a consulting firm.

I've asked if that firm will do business with state government or clients interested in doing the same. UPDATE: Hutchinson spokesman said he believed Gilmore's "primary focus" would be politics. I have asked if that means Arkansas political candidates. He said yes.

Hutchinson recently named Alison Williams, a staff member whose resume included lobbying with Hutchinson in Washington after he left the Bush administration, to become the new chief of staff, succeeding Michael Lamoureux, who's apparently going to be a lobbyist in Washington.

Gilmore makes about $105,000 a year. No announcement yet of a replacement.
